What I’ve been doing recently

In the recent weeks, due to the Theology Slam 2020 victory and becoming part of the BBC, I have been invited to speak on numerous podcasts.

I’m a contributor and presenter for the BBC Daily Services and other programs. If you would like to invite me to speak at your organisation, faith community and event please contact me via the Contact Me page.


Throughout my professional life, I have spoken across cultures around the world in faith communities, university seminars,  retreats and conferences, with over 15 years experience. I have conducted with cooperations, educational groups and given lectures at theological, business and inclusive conferences. I continue to contribute to a variety of subjects around the world.

My Motto

My life motto is to invest in others who will invest in those to become the best version of themselves. This begins with a conversation and figuring out a person’s morals, values and principles. And you begin to help them come home to their true selves.

“It’s not about cheap diversity, but belonging.”


This is a quote from the Theology Slam 2020 Final, where I talked about Religion and Race.
